The Production Exchange presents
by Jane Austen In a new adaptation by Tim Luscombe Directed by Colin Blumenau
5 - 10 June 2017
Two hundred years after the much-loved author’s death, Jane Austen’s comic masterpiece, Emma, takes us on a joyful journey packed full of warmth and wit, romantic schemes and mistaken intentions.
Young, bright and beautiful, Emma Woodhouse has the world at her feet, or at least the small part of Surrey in which she lives. When the dashing Mr Elton comes to town she decides to take it on herself to perform the role of matchmaker to her new friend Harriet Smith. But to Emma’s great surprise, the more she tries to manipulate the destinies of others, the less success she has, until she herself, determined never to wed, is forced to face her own feelings and perhaps even dare to love another…
Keeping faithfully to the original, Tim Luscombe (Northanger Abbey, Mansfeld Park and Persuasion) relates Austen’s story with verve and style, transporting her famous characters vividly to the stage, including the dashing Mr Knightley, the comic hypochondriac Mr Woodhouse and the sublimely dull Miss Bates!
